Description Kraig Spear 2017-10-02 13:42:59 UTC
1. Create a new blank iOS project
2. Create a new Storyboard / UIViewController
3. Open info.plist to set the startup interface
4. Select the desired item from the list

Run the project


The selected item isn't the main interface, in fact, there is a crash.

Go back to the info.plist

Notice that there isn't an item selected.

The bug seems to be that if there isn't a key for UIMainStoryboardFile then it will not be created modified. 
If the key is added manually then everything works, and it can be updated.

It also might be a good idea to have QA test the project templates for oddities.
